With demand for its flagship suspendable powder mycorrhizal inoculant on the rise, Mycorrhizal Applications (MA) has responded by adding a new offering to its already robust line of professional soil health products. As of Sept. 1, 2018, MycoApply Ultrafine Endo is now available in convenient and cost-effective one-pound bags.
The new packaging offers convenience for smaller-scale, professional plant producers while also providing a new option for growers interested in trialing the product to see the benefits of these beneficial symbiotic soil organisms first-hand.
“Awareness about the importance of soil health and soil biology is growing rapidly among growers,” says Johan Pienaar, Executive Vice President and COO of Mycorrhizal Applications. “With that has come a rapid acceleration in research on the role of mycorrhizal fungi in the rhizosphere and the demonstrated productivity and sustainability benefits of mycorrhizae to plants. We’re responding by offering the industry’s premier brand – MycoApply Ultrafine Endo – in packaging size that’s more accessible to the many smaller-scale, professional plant producers that want to see this technology at work in their own operations, first-hand.”
MycoApply Ultrafine Endo features a proven consortium of four Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi (AMF) species at a concentration of 130,000 propagules per pound. AMF are biological, symbiotic soil fungi which colonize plants’ root systems and act as a living extension of the roots, drastically increasing the absorptive surface area and improving the plant’s nutrient and water efficiency. Data shows that AMF provide a range of direct and indirect benefits to host plants through this symbiosis, and ultimately increase plants’ overall vitality, stress resilience, drought resistance, and transplant success. They can also reduce necessary investments in other important production inputs such as fertilizer.
MycoApply Ultrafine Endo one pound bags are available for professional growers and green industry professionals through horticulture supply distributors throughout the United States (this product is not intended for retail sales).
